Starting my journey in a new city, at a new school, and attempting to make new friends I considered a blog, but as I discovered: blogging is hard work! Researching, organizing thoughts and search engine optimization takes time. It is done in hopes that others will read our content, comment, and share. Honestly, it’s difficult to fit into a busy schedule. To make it easier here is a list of a few apps to help bloggers on the go.
This free download in the Android playstore allows you to take notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, and record voice reminders. Evernote will allow you to stay organized and improve your productivity. The best part about Evernote is that you can sync notes and files across every electronic device you use whether Android, iPhone, or Mac.
Catch Notes is a free note taking app that proves to be an effective tool for creating notes, ideas, and a laundry list of other things using a hashtag system similar to twitter. It is simple and easy to use without a ton of extra features to get lost in. This is well suited for the technology impaired.
This app is best for active bloggers. The ability to take content and post ideas from any location is a valuable tool. This is a web based word processor accessible from any electronic device. You can also collaborate in real-time with other bloggers. Great for projects!
One of my absolute favorite tools for taking files anywhere is Dropbox. It is simple and installs easily on your laptop or phone. It is the ultimate tool for syncing files between your computer and mobile device. Files are always secure and accessible from any location.
Pictures can make or break an article. Photobucket makes it easier to find or take pictures and share them with everyone in your network also making it easier to post any photos that may not be readily available on your phone.
With this app you can copy, edit, save and share screenshots and images from online. Save images to your desktop and upload it to your posts for attention grabbing pictures sure to inspire others to read your blog.
This is a quick and easy way to get feedback from your readers. Poll Daddy is a great option that allows you to create surveys and polls. You can get instant answers and results using your iPhone or iPad. This can save you the trouble of going through every comment one by one and will save you time, as well as sway your content towards the intended audience.
